What makes this 1 of 50?

What do you think this is worth? I see too many things wrong with this one.

Nice car but not worth that kind of money in MHO.

Conventional rear axle, standard interior, no 429, that seems pretty high to me though it is nice to see these cars going up in value according to appraisal values. That being said it is still a nice car.

Not a 351C...

John,

The reason this is 1 of 50 or whatever the exact number is...

It is a 1971 Q code which were extremely rare. Most were M codes in 1971 that came with 4V engines. The Q code uses the same 4V motor but adds Ram Air.

I would think its worth a little less because of the mods.
Just my thought on the value.

Nice car....but not at $42,500.00. If this was a 100% show quality Boss 351 or 429 Mustang maybe. This one being a 71 and a "Q" code would be fine, IF that was really what was under the hood!! Any of us who have ever turned a wrench on our cars knows the difference between a 351 C and a 351 Windsor. Not even taking into consideration what jbojo had seen wrong with it, the incorrect engine kills it. At this point it's just another Mach 1 with shiny paint and a "Lumpy" cam. What's bad is that someone will see that red paint, only 1 of 50, Cobra Jet and get glossy eyed and get screwed out of some hard earned money.

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!

Jeff,
Yeah I was doing some research on the Q code after I posted this and found that that option was put into production in May, so towards the end of the model year.

Also it looks to be a 351W vice C as Don mentioned. I asked the seller if this was a numbers matching restore just to see what they say.

They also say Ram Air but it truly isn't, I see they have one of the Tall MSD distributors so I am wondering if they removed the air cleaner base because of the clearance issues. I guess if it has a NACA hood it's Ram Air Wink

Lastly I agree that all the mods probably drives the price down in my opinion too. The car does look good though.

Not a 351CJ anymore, it has a 351W, so originality is out the window, not that that wasn't totally obvious with the interior and mono color body and chassis.

Ford built way more than 50 351CJ cars, the 1 of 50 probably after the color and trim code breakdown. Heck, you could make any car 1of1 if you drill down far enough or in the right sequence of options.

Nice car, not my cup of tea. $25 ~ $30k, tops.
